Description Recorded May 17, 2018 Mobile-optimized for viewing on tablets and smartphones Webinar Description Time off for baby. California provides strong protections for employees who are pregnant and/or new parents. Under California’s Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL), employers with five or more employees must allow an employee to take up to four months of job-protected leave when the employee is disabled by pregnancy. On the books for 2018, California’s New Parent Leave Act (NPLA) requires that smaller employers provide new parents with up to 12 workweeks of unpaid job-protected leave to bond with a new child. Under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the similar California Family Rights Act (CFRA), job-protected parental leave is not new for workers at companies with 50 or more employees. Given the number of laws involved, managing pregnancy and baby bonding leave is not an easy task .
